Denver Voters to Decide on 'Magic Mushroom' Decriminalization

Denver voters will decide Tuesday whether the city becomes the first in the United States to decriminalize the use of psilocybin, the psychedelic ingredient in "magic mushrooms."

The city's mayor and district attorney oppose the citizen-led initiative, but there's little organized opposition to the proposal, the Associated Press reported.

A campaign in California to decriminalize psilocybin did not qualify for the statewide ballot in 2018.

In Oregon, organizers are trying to get enough support to have a similar initiative voted on in 2020, the AP reported.
